The Cup of Tea, The Flogging Reel




Irish bagpipes solo, Regal-Zonophone IZ 711. Martin was from Ballagh, Co. Fermanagh. He was a very dedicated piper, travelling far and wide to meet up with other musicians (despite being physically frail) and playing often on the radio, One person he inspired to take up the instrument was Sean MacAloon of Belfast, who taught many pipers in turn. Martin died in the late 30s at a young age. He usually played a flat set of pipes, pitch around 'C', but on this disc plays a concert 'D' set. These two reels are great favorites with pipers. Martin has some nice bits of stacatto piping in a mostly legato performance.
